Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams tasting room glass.

A:Beautiful golden color, just a touch of head, making a ring around the glass, doesn't even cover the beer.

S:The strongest note I detected was honey, some hops and citrus are perceived as well.

T:Nice and balanced, no particular flavor shines through. More mouth feel on this beer than taste. Quite light and pleasant taste for what is there.

M: Nice body to this beer, feels thicker in the mouth than it looks. Strong carbonation on the tongue with a nice finish.

O: Nice everyday drinking beer, especially for a hot day. Is a simple, well done white beligan style beer.

Served in a Sam Adams signature pint.

Appearance: Light hazy gold, (white) head is not as built as some would like rising to maybe 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Strong [lemon] citrus scent with a hard yeast feel. Weird in a way that it might smell spoiled to others but still happy.

Taste: Lemon oh yes lemon with a yeast feel that really can't leave you unhappy. Honestly I really like it, it is creamy a little sweet and of course bitter. Well made.

Mouth Sharp texture, that tingles the palates. Medium carbonation feel;s just right.

Overall: People have bashed this beer but it lives to above of it's potential. It is tasty and with a crisp after-taste it is incredibly satisfying. Salud!

Not a fan of Belgian Ales to begin with. This is par for the course with me. Definitely not the worst I've had. Would still drink this beer over any Domestic Lagers. I will give this beer a try again in the future just to be certain that I'm not on a vein of IPA adoration.
